Advent Calendar Drawing Contest


Welco- I can't see anything. Is anyone there? Someone turned off the lights, let me go fix that. Just give me a second. . . just a second. . . almost. . . There! At least now I can see you :3
Welcome one and all!
This year's Advent Calendar Drawing Contest is about to kick of!
Another year is drawing to a close yet again, and traditions wouldn't be traditions if they stopped happening, so it's time for another, wonderful advent calendar drawing contest. After 2 weeks of collecting ideas and counting votes, it's time to get the creativity flowing. Prepare yourself a lovely cup of hot chocolate, take your drawing supplies and let your fingers flow. It's time to get creative!

As some of you might already know, each December has an Advent Calendar. Every day, every user will have 24 doors, one for each day leading up to Christmas, with a small task and a reward waiting! This time, the fun started a little earlier because you had the chance to suggest (and vote!) for this year's theme. Plenty have been sent in and even more votes were collected. Are you excited? I know I was :3c

Every year, we've been blessed with wonderful backgrounds and there's no reason that this year should be any different. There's just no going back to the same monotonous blue background on the Advent-page with all its doors. Which is exactly why we're organising this contest for all the wonderful artists lurking in every crook and cranny, waiting for their opportunity!

Reward
Drawing itself can have its charms, drawing with a chance to win something, does even more so. Aside from the wonderful feeling of winning, the five best designs will, as every year, be available as a background for everyone's calendar. They will also get their pick of any shiny Advent pokémon [legendary excluded], that has been released so far.
Currently available Advent pokémon: Snowling, Santa Bird, Skugar, Frosty Kecleon, Pachirisnow, Gooseboarder, Woopice, Rudolph
Anyone else who joined/qualified, but just missed out on the big prize, will get a participation prize as thanks for joining. You'll have to wait and see [and join] to know what it is

Artwork Requirements
Accepted File Types: .PNG .JPEG .JPG
Image Size: 650 x 1000 px (width x height)
Artwork Type: Digital, no transparency [final product]
Artwork Design: Enjoy yourself! As you might have noticed, someone has turned of the lights, how are we going to shine a light on this dark Winter's Day? As long as Light is the main focus, anything is welcome! (Northern Lights? Burning of the Yule log? Preparing for a Lucia Festival? Cozy around a roaring fire? Fairy Lights? The possibilities are endless!) Just make sure there's at least one pokémon in it. Additionally, keep the theme in mind as well, so don't make holidays/religion the main focus of your entry. Some religions are based around Lights, but keep the focus where it should, not on the overall religion.
[As this gets asked every year - yes, PokéSonas/OCs count as pokémon]
File Upload: Please upload it to a website which doesn't delete it within the next 30 days and allows third party viewing. (Recommended: sta.sh, tinypic.com, imgur.com)
Copyright: The artwork has to be drawn completely by you. You are not allowed to include images from other artists, including official art. Entries from previous years also can't be (re)submitted, even if it would still fit the theme somehow.

Please post your finished artwork in this thread!

Deadline
The deadline is November 22nd, 23:59.
The winners will be chosen by us, the staff, based on quality.
The results should be revealed on the 30th of November.

Please keep SPAM posts out of this thread

Most important of all, though, I hope you all HAVE FUN~

The street lamp was supposed to be the main 'light' in question, though I'm not sure if that quite came through clearly in the final product.
